England Premier League — 07 August 2012

I have been an admirer of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers for a long time.

The Irishman has a clear philosophy on how the game should be played and at Swansea he implemented it superbly.

Liverpool’s summer transfer dealing’s hasn’t exactly inspired Reds supporters with confidence though.


Liverpool fans seem displeased with the players leaving the club. Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani seemed to split opinion on the red half of Merseyside, but now that he has left the club for Fiorentina there seems to be a minority of fans that wished the club had kept hold of him.

It seems that lively winger Craig Bellamy is set for a move back to hometown team Cardiff City. However, the biggest player that could leave Anfield this summer is Demark international defender Daniel Agger.

According to reports Liverpool have turned down two bids from Premier League champions Manchester City for the Reds centre-back. It looks as though City boss Roberto Mancini is ready to make a third bid. It’s believed that if City bid £30million then the Reds will sell the Danish star.


I feel sorry for the Liverpool boss, it seems he has to sell-to-buy this summer. This trouble was caused by former-boss and Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish wasting money on overpriced players last summer.

It seems the Anfield coffers are now empty and if Rodgers wants to bring in new players he has to sell anybody he can to raise funds. It’s just a shame that he has to sell one of his better players, instead of some of the dead wood at the club.


Brendan Rodgers has a big job on his hands to resurrect Liverpool’s flagging fortunes. I believe he can do it, but as he has stated himself it’s going to take patience and time.

Unfortunately, it seems that he is doing his job with his hands tied behind his back. Liverpool are a massive club and they won’t achieve success by selling their better players. Good luck Brendan, you’re going to need it.

Can Brendan Rodgers resurrect Liverpool’s flagging fortunes?
